From: Huacai Chen <chenhc@lemote.com>

kexec-tools use mem=X@Y to pass usable memories to capture kernel, but
in commit a94e4f24ec836c8984f83959 ("MIPS: init: Drop boot_mem_map") all
BIOS passed memories are removed by early_parse_mem(). I think this is
reasonable for a normal kernel but not for a capture kernel, because a
capture kernel should be able to see all old memories, even though it is
not supposed to use them.

Fixes: a94e4f24ec836c8984f83959 ("MIPS: init: Drop boot_mem_map")

- Determine whether it is a capture kernel by judging whether there
  is an "elfcorehdr" parameter in the cmdline.
